Tehran, YJC. The Spokesman of the Judiciary Branch has said that during the New Year holiday 30 thousand prisoners been bailed out.
Mohseni Ejei said in his first news conference this year that for the New Year holiday thirty thousand prisoners were released on bond to spend the time with their families.

He also pointed to the clemency given to 1059 jailers and said "Some of the convicts’ terms were reduced and some other had sentences other than confinement. Also as previous years, the Head of the Judiciary Branch issued a circular to the Prisons Organizations to give New Year bail out to prisoners with charges other than fraud or to those who have had decent behavior in the prison and would not commit crime if release.”

He also pointed to the employment of prisoners and said "Society and the prisoners’ families expected that people who couldn’t do jobs and be helpful to their family and society not remain jobless. Accordingly the Prisons Cooperation carried out changes last year where in the first 8 months 57 workshops were launched and 1400 prisoners started working.”
